★Chicken tenderloins
3 ~ 4

1 tablespoon
★Pepper
to taste
★Krazy Salt (optional)
as needed

Steps

1. Remove the sinews from the chicken tenderloins. Cut into about 2-3 pieces per tenderloin, and sprinkle with the sake.
2. Line a frying pan with parchment paper, and evenly spread 2 tablespoons of grated cheese.
3. Place the chicken tenderloins on top of the cheese. Sprinkle with pepper, Krazy Salt (optional), and 1 additional tablespoon of grated cheese. Cover with a lid, and steam-fry over medium heat.
4. Once lightly browned, coat the chicken with the melting cheese, and flip. When the meat has cooked through, it's done.

Story Behind this Recipe

I had first tried frying the chicken with a coating made with a mixture of panko bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, black pepper, and Krazy Salt. But since I wanted to make it cheesier, I skipped the panko bread crumbs. It turned out to be delicious.
Since then, this dish has become a popular in our family's bento lunchboxes.
